Known in the Bay Area as “makers of gourmet ice cream for adults,” Humphry Slocombe is “taking over” a new San Francisco spot. As recently reported by SF Eater, the space is a 5,876-square-foot production facility at 121 Capp Street — just around the corner from Maruya, Slate Bar, and Irma’s Pampanga.
The Humphry Slocombe team tells What Now San Francisco, “We chose this location for our new production facility because our lease was up at our old location and we were fortunate enough to find a facility that had all of our requirements for ice cream and inclusion production. We feel lucky to have found such a location in the heart of the Mission, where we opened our first store 14 years ago.”
The local ice cream company opened its first shop in 2008 and has six existing locations — two in San Francisco, one in the Ferry Building and one in the Mission District, and outposts in Emeryville, Redwood City, Berkeley, and Oakland.
“A San Francisco favorite, Humphry Slocombe offers a menu of unusual and trailblazing ice cream flavors,” the team shares with What Now. When asked what flavor they recommend trying, they respond, “Among the best-sellers is Secret Breakfast, made with bourbon and cornflakes. Once the cornflakes are baked into a crispy cookie, they are folded into a rich ice cream base infused with vanilla and bourbon. Food Network has named Secret Breakfast one of the Top 5 Ice Creams in America.”
Other in-store flavors include Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee, Honey Graham, Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple, Tahitian Vanilla, Malted Milk Chocolate Brown Butter, Spice Pear, Almond Joy, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie, Pumpkin Galette, and Matchadoodle. For customers unable to make it to the shop, the company offers free delivery in the Bay Area.
